Teachers at Lake Forest Elementary School have discovered how to make technology work for them in their classroom. According to the article “Differentiated Instruction: Getting Personal with Technolgy” by Grace Rubenstein on the Edtopia website, these teachers have brought technology and differentiated instruction together to make an optimal learning environment in the classroom. They have taken two major teaching initiatives and made them into an almost symbiotic relationship. One depends on the other for the classroom to work.
I found it inspiring that these teachers are not your typical techie type teachers. They were willing to take the plunge and try something new that they were unfamiliar with. I think this article would be quite helpful to recommend to colleagues that feel unsure of using technology in the classroom. Everyone can start somewhere and build day by day their knowledge and ability of technology. Teachers owe that to the modern day student.
